Best of 2009

December 22 Startup. What's a business that you found this year that you love? Who thought it up? What makes it special?
It's been a very long time since I was in a Camper's Village store but there's a new one on the south side of the city, which we explored a bit before going to Africa.  I got some travel clothes (a hoodie and a long sleeve shirt) while Bob picked up mitts and a headlamp, as well as other assorted necessities.  The store was packed with tons of good stuff at decent prices and it's very accessible for us.  Staff were knowledgable and helpful, while allowing individual browsing time.  Shopping for gifts for hikers, campers or outdoor enthusiasts is so easy at this store!  And a bonus was the very nice reusable bag in which they packed our purchases.
And I have to mention an old store that's become a new favourite for groceries!   Real Canadian Superstore is my 'go-to' place these days.  Heather recommended it and it really is the best place for great prices and lots of selection.  I like the choices between top quality and cheap prices, the wide selection of gluten-free foods they offer and the large produce aisle.  It's an hour drive to the nearest one so I try to get there once a month and stock up on good buys.  They also have great sales and bonus items if your purchase reaches certain levels.
